Pyongyang, August 2 (KCNA) -- Rim Jong Sim, a weightlifter of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, won the women's 69 kg category at the London Olympic Games on Wednesday, bringing the DPRK the fourth gold medal.

She succeeded in lifting 115 kg in snatch and 146 kg in clean-and-jerk, 261 kg in total.

After the competition, she told reporters that the only thing she wanted to do right now is to run to respected Marshal Kim Jong Un with her gold medal in her hand.

The 2009-Year World's Ranking, released by the International Weightlifting Federation, listed Rim as a star in her teens.

Belonging to the Kigwancha Sports Team, she took three gold medals in women's 48 kg category in the Sports Contest for Mangyongdae Prize held in 2008.

She bagged three silver medals in the First World Juvenile Weightlifting Championships in 2009 and a gold medal in the 2011 World Junior Weightlifting Championships.

Now she became an Olympic gold medalist.

The good results of the DPRK athletes at the London Olympics display the inexhaustible strength of Songun (military-first) Korea.
